Hi, I'm Christine Wheaton, I'm a beauty expert, and I'm going to show you how to do hair and makeup from the '70s. We're going to start with the hair, and I'm just going to curl her hair kind of Farrah Fawcett-ish. So, I'm going to start by just applying a pomade to her hair that'll help hold the curl a little bit. And then, I'm just going to apply it to the ends. And, when you're doing the Farrah Fawcett curls, you want all the curls to go away from the face. So, you're going to take a strand, and just hold it so that you're curling out, away from the face. And, just let it hold for a little bit. And, we're going to brush through these curls afterwards. So, once you have some of the curls done, you can take a brush, and you can kind of comb it out. I like to hold it upwards, so you could kind of just put your hand there, and I'm combing up, because I want it to feather out. Once you have the feathers there, then you can spray it. Now that you've done your hair, you can start with your makeup. Makeup was really bronze then, as well as some maybe blue eye shadow, which is what we're going to do. So, on her lid, I'm going to take a nice, light, kind of a sky blue, dust it all over there. Just doing a sheer color. And then, I'm going to do a light silvery color on her eyebrow bone. And then, a black liquid liner, just a thin line, we don't want anything too dramatic. And then, we're going to add some bronzer. This bronzer has a little bit of a shimmer to it, and I'm going to dust it all over her face to give her that sun kissed glow. And, the last thing I'm going to do is just line underneath her eyes. I'm going to use that same kind of aqua color. Okay, look up. And, I'm going to lightly put the line, and then I'll go back and smudge it a little bit. And then, our final step's going to be kind of a frosty lip gloss in a nice pale pink. Alright, so our '70s look is complete. we did the Farrah Fawcett hair, the blue eye shadow, frosty pink lip gloss, lots of bronzer. It's really simple to do, doesn't take that long. Try it out, have fun. Thanks for watching, I'm Christine Wheaton.
